(The Center Square) - Acting South Dakota Attorney General Mark Vargo said Friday residents have until Aug. 15 to comment on a proposed constitutional amendment regulating abortion.

The amendment sent to Secretary of State Steve Barnett says the state could not "regulate" a woman's abortion decision during the first trimester.

In the second trimester, the state may "regulate" an abortion decision unless the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother. The amendment is the same for the third trimester but allows for physicians to use their judgment.

In a separate effort, Dakotans for Health is advocating to get the abortion question on the 2024 ballot. Signatures are being collected on its website.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade in June, abortion laws have been left up to the states.
